AIRPORT INFORMATION & TRANSPORTATION
The Cayman Islands have three main airports; Owen Roberts International Airport(GCM), Charles Kirkconnell International Airport(CYB), and Edward Bodden Airfield(LYB). There are many direct flights from USA gateways and several connecting flights from the UK and Canada with most major airlines flying into Grand Cayman. Since most guests fly into Grand Cayman, know that there is a government regulated taxi stand (with fixed rates) when you depart immigration and customs to assist you. Rental car agencies are readily available but do know that they drive on the left side of the road (British system).
Whether you are seeking relaxation, adventure, or cultural experiences the Cayman Islands has something for everyone. A few of the different activities you can look forward to are snorkeling at Stingray City, walking on the beautiful Seven Mile Beach, visiting the Cayman Turtle Centre, visiting the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park which is also home to rare Blue Iguanas, and of course scuba diving and snorkeling!
Pedro St. James National Historic Site, Cayman Islands National Museum, Mission House, Old Savannah Schoolhouse, and Mastic Trail offer a glimpse into the islands past and provide valuable information about the culture and heritage of the Caymanian people.
Most dishes of the Cayman Islands reflect a blend of Caribbean, Jamaican, British and other international influences. Seafood is a prominent feature, with dishes often incorporating fresh fish, conch, lobster, and other local seafood. Conch fritters, jerk chicken, fish tacos, and rum cake are a few of the more popular dishes you should consider trying to experience authentic flavors of Caymanian cuisine!
